Let It Slide

Tuesday, February 11, 2020
Taking down the old water slide at the Greencastle Aquatic Center piece by piece, a crew from Graves Construction clears the way for new slides to be installed at the pool later this year. The upgrades to the pool are thanks to a $1.6 million bond issue for park upgrades. The old slide is set to be out by later this month, clearing the way for Switz City-based Graves to also install the new, upgraded two-slide configuration. The pool will likely open for the season without the new addition, with a target date of July 3 for the slides to be complete.

  • The schools continue to move the start dates up and therefore the "summer" gets shorter for the pool. This year the start date is Aug.5th - I would love to see the Park find a way to keep the pool open until Labor Day.

  • Agreed. The schools in Greencastle have had a start date of August 4,5, or 6 for the last 8 years.

  • The above comments are valid. That being said, does it really move the financial needle? Would attendance really offset the costs?

    School events, sporting events, school responsibilities, etc.

    I would encourage a detailed and logical financial review/ projection of staying open. I would want to know the break even number.

    Just a thought

  • Since common sense is so rare, should we call common sense uncommon sense?
